lost relatives Claude Bratton
Posted by: Margaret Bratton Hayden Date: August 07, 1997 at 04:13:41
  of 39005

Briefly this is our lineage:
John Bratten..............1675..Ulster Ireland....1718..Maryland
William Bratten...........1700..Ulster Ireland....1748..Maryland
William Bratten...........1725..Maryland..........1792..Maryland
William Bratten...........1755..Maryland..........1843..Ohio
Joshua Bratten............1790..Maryland..........1866+.Tennessee
Joshua Bratton (note sp)..1822..Tennessee.........1919..Missouri
John Fillmore Bratton.....1856..Illinois..........1919..Missouri
Rodger Newton Bratton.....1886..Missouri..........1970..Missouri

Rodger had 3 sons, Floyd (1904-1966), Ollie (1909-1970), Claude
(?-?). All were born at Bluffton, Missouri. After their mother
(Dora Loveall Bratton)died the 3 sons grew up in an orphanage
and were in contact with their father after they were grown.
Floyd and Ollie remained in Missouri. Claude went to California.
Last letter to his father (Rodger) was from Redwood City,
California. Enclosed were pictures of some of his children.

Floyd and Ollie's children (first cousins) met each other for the
first time in 1996. Claude (we believe) died in the 1940's. We
very much want to locate Claude's children. Their mother's name
was Dot (maybe short for Doris or Dorothy) We believe these are
their names and birth years. James, 1932 - Pearl, 1934 -
Claudette, 1935 - Virginia, 1940 - Donna and Donald, 1942. We
think Donna and Donald are twins. Twins are a family trait.
Ollie had a twin sister who died as an infant.
Can any one help us in locating these family members?
Sincerely, Margaret (Bratton) Hayden Daughter of Ollie Bratton.
